Cats Cling to 4th at Pac-10 Tournament
April 25, 2009
PALO ALTO, Calif. - The Arizona women's golf team trimmed two shots off its first round total to hold onto 4th place at the 2009 Pac-10 Championships, Saturday afternoon at the Stanford Golf Course.
The Wildcats shot 296 on the day after tallying a team score of 298 on Friday to sit at +26 overall, two shots ahead of Stanford.
Freshman Nikki Koller led the way for the Wildcats with a 1-over round over 72 and sits tied for 17th place at +6 for the tournament. Sophomore Alejandra Llaneza is also at 6-over after her second-straight round of 74 while Isabelle Boineau leads the Wildcats at 5-over after carding a 73 on Saturday.
Koller carded a trio of birdies on the day, but saw what would have been a sub-par round undone by a triple bogey on the 10th hole. Still, Koller played the par 5 holes at 2-under while also birdied the par-3 17th hole.
Four players share the individual lead at 1-under par, three of them from team-leader Arizona State. The Sundevils were 3-under on the day and hold a 5-shot lead over UCLA at 6-over par. USC is in third place at 15-over.
The final round of the tournament tees off on Sunday morning with Wilson leading the way for the Wildcats on the first tee at 7:30 a.m.
